Josephine Doily WIP2



I have tatted a few more rounds but made a mistake. I am not correcting it as I only realised it after finishing the round. It will not affect the subsequent rounds of the pattern but the lower ring should be 2 ds larger and there should not be picots in the chains on either side of the ring. 

Yes it is staying, not a fan of cutting or unpicking one whole round.

Angels



I saw these for sale at the local supermarket. I was really tempted to buy them but someone reminded me that I already have too many plants. A photo of it on my blog will have to suffice.

Matilda V2



This version of Matilda has simple chains unlike the earlier one. A pattern from Lee Hye-oon of Lovely Tatting. Using two distinct colours, you can see that one colour is tatted first while the second is intertwined and joined to the first. Both versions are pretty. This one is tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 in Col. 635 Violet Pink Dark and Col. 646 Purple Iris Dark.

A Sleeping Cat





She knows how to relax. 
I wish I could sleep as well as she does.
She loves her catnip pillows.

Matilda



Margaret sent me this pattern when she saw it on the Bella Online Tatting Newsletter. Thank you Margaret. It is a pattern by Lee Hye-oon and it can also be found in her new book 'Lovely Tatting: Doilies for Fall & Winter'.

I used Lizbeth Size 20 threads Col. 620 Azalea Medium and Col. 694 Harvest Orange Medium.

Durians



It looks exactly like the real fruit



But it is actually a cake.
Must try it one day.

I interpreted the pattern incorrectly and tatted the above. My apologies to the designer. Below is what it should be.



The pattern is by Lee Hye-oon and can be found here on Lovely Tatting.

Dinner at Daimon Bistro


The newly refurbished bistro


It could look like you were in Hong Kong instead

The lights in there made all the photos without the use of flash pink

Water was served in enamel cups with the chef's mantra.
Chef Alvin Leung is known as The Demon Chef.

Pretty Purple





This plant had some lovely purple flowers.
I have only seen the plant but not the flowers until now.
It looks like a Chlorophytum but I may be wrong.
